make your own antiaging cream, skin lightening cream, shampoo, conditioner, lipstick, blush...
i notice that there are people where spending at least 100 bucks for products that will only last maybe 1-2 months at the most. why do that unless you are filthy stinkin' rich or want to be cheritable to multimillion dollar cosmetic companies that over charge you cause they know you are stupid enough to pay. maybe stupid is too harsh but i sure feel stupid spending 300 bucks in one year on skin lightening product for my hyperpigmentation when i could make my own (HQ free) for far less.
here are some sites i found over the years that sell natural and synthetic cosmetic ingredients
Skin Actives Scientific
Premium ingredients at less than premium prices... Lotioncrafter

if you can bake a cake from scratch then you can make your own cosmetics. you will need a few supplies, practice and a bit of proper mixing knowlege but there are alot of forums that can help. some of the sites i gave above have their own forums and a little research will go a long way. im looking to expand this list so if you know any good sites that sells cosmetic ingredients can you please name them.
